Rooms felt very packed and not enough space to move around in. you could definitely find something better for the price they're asking.


The hostel is great in terms of location and staff, but it could really use a makeover. The beds are made of plastic (pillows too), only 2 tiny bathrooms, and it kind of smells bad in general. That said, I stayed here for 4 nights and still had an awesome time in Medellin. This hostel is in a cheaper, but still safe, part of el poblabo and is super close to the metro ( which you should totally utilize) so if you want to find a nice home base close to cheap food and the metro, this is a good one


Average hostel with 8 beds in a small room which is next to community area where people smoke pot inside. So dorm and even ur towel stinks, besides that; only two bathrooms. Said that, atmosphere is good if you don't mind people go out at night and when coming back keep on chilling in reception area, which makes it noisy at night. Kitchen has good facilities and staff is friendly and helpfull
